SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mondial Ventures, Inc. (OTCBB: MNVN) is pleased to announce the funding and initiation of a workover and development program to increase production on their recently acquired working interest in the oil producing property J.B. Tubb Leasehold Estate/Amoco Crawar Field.
As previously announced on August 2, 2012, the Company plans to immediately increase and stabilize oil and natural gas production, with additional anticipated oil production increases as the remedial work programs progress. The funding has been secured to provide for perforating into the new untapped Glorieta Formation in the Crawar #2 well in West Texas. This area is a proven behind pipe oil & gas zone at the target depth of 3900 ft. Upon completion of the perforations being shot, the well will be acidized immediately and put back onto production. It is expected the Company may frac the well in the near future.
The properties operator, Success Oil Inc, estimates usual recoverable amounts of up to 75,000 bbls. of oil and 100,000 mcf of natural gas for this formation's pay zone.
Dennis Alexander, Mondial's CEO, stated, "We are pleased to be moving forward on schedule with this workover and development program. We believe this work in the Glorieta Formation with its proven untapped reserves will provide for a profitable increase in production and should be an excellent return on investment."
About Mondial Ventures, Inc.
Mondial Ventures, Inc. is engaged in the acquisition of Oil and Gas properties and assets that can be developed into revenue producing assets. The Company has put an emphasis on acquiring existing Oil fields with proven reserves or by the rehabilitation of oilfields with potentially high throughput.
The J.B. Tubb Leasehold Estate/Amoco Crawar field is Mondial's first acquisition. Currently, there are three wells in operation on the property. The property is located in the Permian Basin on the Crawar Field, which is directly adjacent to property operated by Chevron Corporation in Ward County, Texas (12 miles southeast of Monahans and 30 miles west of Odessa in West Texas). The Crawar field is currently considered to be one of the most prolific oil & gas fields in West Texas. Several major oil companies have already established several ongoing drilling projects in this large field. Present Crawar field statistics show overall production capabilities of 500,000 barrels of oil and 4.6 BCF of natural gas per month.
Additional terms for the acquisition include an option to develop and drill a series of wells on the J.B. Tubb Leasehold Estate/Amoco Crawar Field, South 40.
Mondial initially plans to exercise one of its options by providing $1.575 million, raised on a best efforts basis, for the drilling of an Ellenburger Well at a depth of 8,300 ft.
Public Records reveal an average production rate of 240 barrels of oil per day for Ellenburger wells on properties adjacent to the South 40 acreage that are currently owned by Chevron, BP and McCulloch Oil Corp. of California.
